Once Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, it didn't take him long to make a name for himself in the farm tire market. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. His goal was to get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked ride comfort and traction. In other words, "Put the Farm on Rubber." His dream was realized by 1950 when you'd be hard pressed to find a tractor that didn't roll on rubber. Today, Harvey Firestone's original Ohio farmstead is still in use. It's home to the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center, where farm tire tech continues to develop!

Farm Tires in Fort McMurray: For the Growing Season
Growers can benefit from running on flotation tires during key seasons of the year. Flotation tires aim to decrease the damage done to a field's yield. They're made with a wider footprint to limit soil compaction. This unique farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Fort McMurray for equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Fort McMurray
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Fort McMurray. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The truth is, the answer varies. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Alberta farm. You may find it helpful to use a combo of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has shown that in terms of fuel economy, a track system will consume more fuel since it takes more horsepower to rotate the track. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. And for traction, our research indicates that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. In the end, many things can alter the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Fort McMurray Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
